Today felt like a real weekend again. I actually dressed in good clothes, grabbed the hubby and we went downtown for the St. Patty's Day Parade. The town was out in their "greenery" with dogs and kids festooned in shamrocks.
We wandered the shops and galleries. Enjoyed our local Irish gathering, and hit a wonderful book sale at one of my favorite stores. The Bird's Nest. 50% off of EVERYTHING! This store is unique in the fact that they mix old books with antiques. You will not find the latest best seller here, but you will find a Gladys Taber book that you have never seen before. They do not take credit cards and they ring you out on an old fashioned cash register. So cool!
All that great shopping made me hungry and we made a mad dash in the rain for the Iron Horse Pub for a lovely meal of a homemade burger and sweet potato fries. The place was packed with parade goers. Such fun! I thought once I got home, it would be some chores and do a little decorating for Easter but my youngest had to run to Seeley Lake and I rode shotgun. What a lovely drive thru the forest where there was still quite a lot of snow on the ground and deer everywhere. We got a lot of nice chatting in and it was fun to have a little road trip. Now it is time for our movie with Goobers and buttered popcorn. Always, Kit
